Beautiful Beasties is an international network of professional pet photographers, of which I am very privileged to be a part of. Within the network a group was formed for photographers who wanted to participate in a project, a 52 week project. Each week a theme is chosen and posted, then we all go out and take a photograph or series of photographs to fit the theme, then we all post onto our own websites and form a ring by linking all the websites. That means you can look at my images and then follow the links all over the world to see what other pet photographers are capturing.
The theme for week 40 is ‘Away From home’ – “The idea here is to scout out a new location for shooting in your area. Somewhere that isn’t your studio or a place that you frequently visit. Go out exploring and find somewhere new. There are lots of locations out there waiting for you to discover them. Have fun! ”
Wow, this theme has so many endless possibilities….and I had some great ideas too…. in the end I had to fit this weeks theme around work and Aimilee’s gymnastics schedule 😉 so the Kelpie girls and I stopped in at an off leash dog park (on the way to work) that we do not usually go to, it is a pretty park with lots of big trees, but when we got there it was closed for weed spraying…hmmm what to do…this particular dog park is within a larger sporting complex, so we headed off on-leash to see what we could find….
We found some tiered seating behind the netball courts, one of the sections had a lovely big tree framing the seat….
The girls were more than happy to pose for me while they watched the various passers by – there were other dogs out for a walk, joggers, bike riders and some Mum’s with prams.
I was even rewarded with a very, very rare head tilt from Skarla! I don’t think she has given me one since she was a puppy, she is just so serious all the time
Milly took the opportunity to wear her new collar and lead set she got from our lovely market neighbours Dog & Outdoor, so I just had to photograph her wearing it…
I think she looks very pleased with herself
If you are looking for a new collar lead or other accessory, for your dog, I can highly recommend Dog & Outdoor for the highest quality products, Milly’s collar and lead is of the most lovely soft leather, yet is still so strong!
Now as usual, sit back, grab a cuppa and follow the links all the way around our blog circle, starting with NCS Pet Photography In Windsor, keep going until you get back here.
I hope you enjoy this weeks instalment of my project 52.
